If you haven't seen the show, it's easy to compare it to a British version of The Wire because it deals with the lives of drug dealers, many of them young, and the consequences of living this lifestyle and the inherent dangers it brings.
Netflix has just confirmed the reboot - for it there'll be ten new episodes, and it will again star Ashley Walters and Kano, with original writer Ronan Bennett on board together with director Yann Demange.
The rapper/actor is adding TV producer to his credits: He's teaming with Netflix to bring back Top Boy, the British crime drama that aired on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom for two seasons before ending in 2013.
"We couldn't be more excited for Netflix members around the world and a new generation of fans to discover the authentic, raw and real world of Top Boy", added Cindy Holland, vice president, Original Content for Netflix.
Now a third season will premiere as an Netflix original series, thanks to Drake and National Basketball Association star LeBron James, who's producing it via his Spring Hill Entertainment production company.
